Excellent location and amazing views from the rooms. Go for Deluxe rooms with balconies as those are valley facing. They don't have a restaurant but have room service. Food is on a bit expensive side though there are plenty of eating options as soon as you step out of the Hotel. Parking has always been a challenge in Shimla but... More

I stayed in hotel white with my husband and 2 year child for 2 nights and I can say this is the best budget hotel by location wise and room view wise(valley facing).Breakfast is good but limited choice and need to increase the menu items. On my checkout day I leave the luggage at the reception at noon. After explore... More

Pros Hotel is located very close to ridge, mall road and the views from valley facing rooms are very good. We stayed in a double room (standard room)no 15. There was open space outside the room to stand and see the views. Room had two windows and ventilation was adequate. Even the washroom had a big Window. Room was spacious... More

Having moved here from a different (and filthy) hotel in Shimla, we were delighted to see this hotel follow their namesake and provide clean white sheets and pillows! We had a lovely corner room which meant lots of natural light and space, and great views across the mountains. The bathroom was pretty standard for an Indian hotel, although once again... More

It is an average property. Property is not well maintained. Room interior is too poor. Bathroom and room interior seems like a hostel. Also, it is located at height and in such a place that, car can't go till there. You will need to carry your luggage through staircase and a quite long way or hire local coolie.

Stayed for one night. I don't know what was going on but there was a high frequency buzzing sound all night long. I thought I was having a tinnitus attack. Stayed on the ground floor. Of course no one bothered to smile the whole time I was there. I hate it when hotel staff treat you like they are doing... More

Pros : Walking distance from the Mall road. walking distance but still away from noise. everyone seems to know the location of this hotel clean and simple rooms with basic but prompt room service. big balcony with breathtaking view (room booked at reception level) over all a good memorable stay at the hotel. Hotel manager Surender was also very helpful.

I would like to begin by mentioning that the our trip to Shimla was made memorable by virtue of our stay at Hotel White. First off, its a name most taxi wallahs and bus drivers recognise, this is a big plus. We had booked in advance and paid for a couple of days in advance too. Upon reaching the hotel... More
